...is a point of contention and controversy.
Despite general directives from the US
Departments of Justice and Homeland Security mandating US security to
aggressively pursue 'Islamist terrorists', the FBI claims to have made no
effort to follow-up on the Russian and CIA security alerts, especially after
Tamerlan Tsarnaev returned from Russian state of Dagestan last year where he
allegedly met six times with a known Chechen terrorist, Gadzhimurad
Dolgatov, in a fundamentalist Salafi mosque.
Congressional critics argue that the FBI was
'negligent' in following up leads provided by the Russians and the CIA. A
more likely explanation is that the FBI was actively engaged with Tsarnaev
and deliberately encouraged the conspiracy for self-serving purposes.
A more plausible hypothesis is that the Boston office of the FBI had set the pair of brothers up for a sting operation in order to enhance their anti-terrorist credentials - and that the 'operation' got out of hand - with Tamarlan having his own agenda.
The most likely hypothesis is that the FBI
facilitated the bombing in order to revive the flagging fortunes of the 'war
on terror' foisted on a war-weary and economically depressed
In 2012, Bulger was finally indicted for 19
murders mostly committed under FBI 'protection' - although one of his
closest mob-partners claims he murdered 40 people in his lifetime.
The military police operation and media campaign aroused fear and terror among the public.
Instant psychodrama produced mass worship of the 'heroic' police:
The police, the FBI and the entire Security Apparatus, were repeatedly 'honored' at public spectacles, sports and civic events, lauded as 'guardians' and 'saviors'.
The sordid role of FBI in organizing entrapment operations was never mentioned.
The hundreds of billions wasted in futile
overseas 'wars against terror' went down the memory hole. The opposition to
Washington's cuts in social programs was diverted almost overnight to
support new funding for US military intervention
in Syria and North Korea, a greater arms
build-up in Israel and domestic security.
The White House has encouraged and promoted Japan's belligerent military posture toward China regarding disputed islands in the South China Sea.
Secretary of State Kerry has increased military aid to the Syrian terrorists by at least $130 million and dispatched hundreds of Special Forces to Jordan to train the jihadi-mercenaries against the Syrian government.
The White House concocted charges that Damascus deployed chemical weapons against the rebels to justify direct US military intervention in Syria.
Closer to home, the White House has given
unconditional support to the violent Venezuelan opposition's post-election
campaign designed to provoke a civil war - while refusing to recognize
internationally certified election victory
of President Maduro.
Instead of Iraq - the 'threat' is now Syria, Iran and Lebanon.
Today, the threat is North Korea - tomorrow it
could be China. Today, it is Venezuela - next it could be Argentina, Bolivia
and Ecuador… and the entire edifice of Latin American regional integration.
The targeted countries have global significance:
Cowering and confusing millions of downwardly
mobile Americans weakens the principle domestic obstacle to bigger and more
comprehensive cuts in social programs in order to finance global wars.
